Buying a classic Porsche 356 can be an exciting time. When Porsche engineers designed this classic car icon nearly 60 years ago, little did they know their “bathtub” design would eventually evolve into the incredibly high-powered 911’s of today. The Porsche 356 had a very successful seven-year run, starting in 1948, before the launch of the highly desirable 356A. For this and many reasons, the 356 models, while expensive to restore, can be found for more reasonable prices than newer Porsche models. When you begin to consider the purchase of a Porsche 356 classic, start by looking at the documentation with the car, make note of the engine and chassis numbers, and ensure both match. You will find the chassis number located in the boot area in front of the tank.
When buying a classic Porsche 356, in addition to checking the chassis number, be sure to check the engine number is correct by matching it to that manufacturing period. One of the other main concerns when looking at any Porsche 356 model – 356a, 356b, 356c, or 356sc – is corrosion. Cars of this age often had very little rust protection. Panels and chassis parts can be expensive to find and restore. As with the purchase of any car, be sure to perform a thorough walk-around and seek the guidance of a professional.
